I'm an android dev, trying to follow the awesome Android Design Guidelines.
In one of them the doc tells me:
Don't use right-pointing carets on line items
A common pattern on other platforms is the display of right-pointing carets on line items that allow the user to drill deeper into additional content.
Android does not use such indicators on drill-down line items. Avoid them to stay consistent with the platform and in order to not have the user guess as to what the meaning of those carets may be."
BUT lately, I've seen right-pointing carets in Google's own apps (Google maps' place reviews page, the Google Chromecast app), please see the screenshots below:
So My question is: Should we (developers) use right-pointing carets or not?
